Not the way I'd like to do it, either, but Kudos for sticking to it.

Congratulations. [archer]

Michael, thank you for sharing your story [campfire]

You did the best you could, used all of your resources, and gave it everything you had for the recovery... Well done to you, your friend, & his dog. Praise God for blessing your efforts on the recovery of this beautiful Whitetail [clapper]

Good job, bud. I agree with your assessment of the similarities between tough hunting & life in general. "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." Cliches become cliches for a reason. Because there is truth in them. So, I congratulate you on not only a well-deserved & hard-earned buck, but also on being an example to all of what TO do, when being an example of any other course would have been much easier.

Congratulations on a nice Buck, and sticking with the recovery.
Not perfect shots happen to everyone sooner or later.
